I would say this about Burton boots from experience. I had Burton Ions which cost me around $280US at the time. They lasted me 3 seasons of hard riding (300+ days) before the speed lacing gave up the ghost and caused some pressure points. I bought some Burton Rulers maybe 2-3 months ago and after about 40-50 days on them the speed lacing ripped to shreds. The Rulers were very obviously MUCH lower quality than my Ions were right out of the box, in fact the first time I tried them on (ordered from Dogfunk which is a great company by the way) they speedlacing system made that infamous popping sound which means it took a shit before I even rode them. If you are going to buy Burton boots with the speedlace system make sure you spend some dough and get something in the range of the Ion or the SL-10 (I think). Personally if I can't afford Ions next round I'll probably get some Salomons. Another thing I must say is both pairs of boots fit me quite well which may be different for anyone else. The Ions had the outlast liners which were the shit, warm as hell and the Ions didn't pack out nearly as bad as the Rulers did.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Just got my Salomon dialouges in exchange for the Rulers under warranty (dogfunk kicks ass!!!) and under fist impression they are a very high quality boot for the money. I have only ridden them in my living room so far (cmon snow!) but the fact they didn't break just tightening them down was a step up. The lacing system is similar but looking at it I can see that the design looks less prone to fail as it doesn't consist of nearly as much plastic and it doesn't have the little plastic runners built into the inside of the boot for the laces to slide through. The plastic parts the laces do run through are also made of a much heavier duty and thicker plastic which is actually riveted into the boot rather than sewn in as well. Don't get me wrong, high end burton boots with the speedlace system are good boots but If you don't have $300 to drop on boots go with something else or you will just be exchanging them within a few months. Another thing I like is that the salomon boots carry a 1 year warranty and the burtons I've had only carried for 6 months. I know it's just my feet but the dialogues are also a lot more comfortable than my rulers, although the IONS felt like butter on my feet, I just can't afford them at this time.
